Description

Watercolor painting of an unidentified plant with pale purple flowers. There are a total of three flowers; one of the blooms is fully open, with orange anthers visible in the center and the other two are mostly closed. The flowers are trumpet-shaped. The fully opened flower falls mostly in the upper left quadrant of the painting and it is oriented mostly toward the viewer, but angled slightly up and to the right. One of the closed flowers appears mostly in the bottom right quadrant; because the viewer sees this flower from the side, it appears to be the largest of the three. The third flower is in the background and is painted without detail. The stem of the plant is thick, sturdy looking, and brown-red. Pencil sketching is visible in multiple places in this painting. A watercolor wash has been applied on the background using blue paint; the olive green paint used for the leaves has bled out into the background in places, as well. The watercolor paper is medium weight and likely cold-pressed. The top and left edges are deckled and there's an embossed brand name in the upper left corner, in all capital letters: WATER FORD SERIES.
